Sheep lung dissections this Thursday, February 21

Science. Staff from the Denver Museum of Nature and Science will be conducting three labs at Legacy Academy with both fourth grades on February 21. This in-school field trip is the culminating activity of our unit on the circulatory and respiratory systems. Each lab concludes with the dissection of sheep lungs by students from both classes working collaboratively in small groups of 2 or 3 and supervised by parent volunteers.

Permission slips, which were sent home last week in the Monday folders, were due last be returned by Friday, February 15. The field trip costs $10 with scholarships available to any student participating in the reduced lunch program.

I’ve had several parents ask to work as volunteers, but more are needed. Labs are scheduled for 9, 11, and 1:30, and while it’s a big time commitment, it also counts towards your volunteer hours. You could accompany your kid during her/his lab or help out Mrs. Waide in the “Bullpen.” Please let Mrs. Waide, our stellar Room Moms, Mmes. Bauer and Cornejo, or me know if you’re interested.
